Question about Gateway PC Desktops

3 Answers

I recently switched from dial up to high speed (Hughes.net) and I cannot print off the internet, it prints, but its a bunch wording pages and wording I don't understand. It doesn't print what I want it to. I was told by my printer company (Canon) that the problem is the browser. Can you help me fix this problem? Thanks, tiethatbinds@aol.com or tiethatbinds@hughes.net

Hi, try browsing the internet with internet explorer, then find the page you want to print go to file -> print
print it, see the results.

Now if that was bad try firefox browser download it and run the setup file from www.mozilla.com/firefox/
open the page in firefox and try printing again, file -> print and see the results.

Try another browser than the one you are using. Go to google and search for "Firefox" and install that browser and see if you can print using that browser.

I have Hughes net. Had Local net dial up.


The software for Local Net should be in your Add/Remove programs. If it is in there, just right click on the program, and click uninstall.

Emachine will not run Hughes' Net to reach internet--EL1852G---can anyone help?


Online access problems are hard to diagnose. There are so many settings on either your modem, router, wireless device, and at your provider's end that could be the problem. Invite a geek for a beer to fix it.

I use Firefox as my default browser. I recently upgraded from dial up to high speed internet. Now, I cannot install software. Help! I don't even know where to start! I'm getting an error that it...


Your Firefox browser is probably still trying to use your Dial-up connection which doesn't exist any more. Set up your browser's Internet Connection again and it'll probably cure your problems!

A menu pops up Click print then ok. if your are using the internet explorer you will pring the web page. If your in word you will print the document.. This is printing.

When I try to print something off the internet, I get a bunch of stuff like <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "..//W3C/DTD HTML 4.01 TRANSITIONAL//EN"...


Hi Minnesott,

Printing from websites are never easy. If a webdesigner anticipates that someone may want to print a page he puts up a link that says printer friendly version. Web pages are essentially ment for viewing not used for printing. That said you can try several things and see if any of them work for you:

1. Click on view on the top menu in internet explorer
2. click on encoding
3. first choose western European windows and print the page if that don't work try Unicode utf-8

Your best shot would be selecting the entire content of the page by highlighting then pasting it in Microsoft word and then printing it from ms word.

HP is coming out with new range of printers which support webpage printing to a very large extent. you may want to consider that for your future upgrade.

Cheers
Keshey

Everytime that I try to print a document, I am getting a lot of boxes. I am not getting the words printed that I need.


Hi Goody2Shoes6, what a great nickname!

If the boxes are a rectangle for every letter, try changing the font, especially if the printer is an old model and the font is recent, if it does it for every font, type up a letter (or type =rand(3) in word and it will put some blurb up for you) then press the Alt key at same time Print Scrn key. Then open paint and go to edit menu / paste. go File Print preferences and set the page to 1 by 1 pages, File / Print preview, if good Print.

The printer should print it, as it is taking it as a picture file, if that same font won't print straight from word (and gives you little squares) it means the printer doesn't have that font listed in it's memory

If it is the case, buy a new printer, or use an older font that works.

:-)
